Whew, Finally Out of October
You know, Oktoberfest can really wear a girl out. All the oompah bands and polkas going on around here.
So now I'm ready for the milder Christmas Holiday season. (You do see my tongue planted firmly in cheek, don't you?)
Actually, it's my favorite holiday of the year. Not the receiving presents part...okay, I can like that part too, but more the spirit, the fun of making handmade gifts for my friends and family.
This year I'm making everyone ornaments. And hopefully, they'll be ornaments that will be designed just specifically for what the person likes. Some will receive my "Pet Portraits" for their favorite dogs or cats, some will find hobbies, or collections represented and others, who tend to be traditional, will receive more of the traditional kind too. Like the Santa that is pictured above. My sister adores seashells, so I'm going to be making those for her. (She doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe.)
So if anyone has a request for a lampwork bead that can become an ornament by just wiring it with a loop, please feel free to contact me through my etsy shop site.... http://www.StudioMarcy.etsy.com. I've got some custom orders going now that are going to make some folks very happy this holiday.
Thanks for stopping by,
